A fire in the garage of an East Toledo auto financing firm yesterday evening caused an estimated $100,000 damage but no injuries, authorities said.
The single-story brick garage attached to Nationwide Auto Finance, 1506 Woodville Rd., caught fire about 6:30 p.m. Firefighters were able to contain the flames to the three-car garage, which had no vehicles inside, Battalion Fire Chief Brian Byrd said.
Nationwide s adjacent two-story office building sustained substantial smoke damage, the chief added.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
